    Hi,
    Any help will be much appreciated guys!
    I 'm trying to give an internet to that virtual machine JanusVM
    which I power by VMplayer.
    So far I have no success.
    My ISP map my MAC to my IP so when I bridge the ethernet adapter of JanusVM to the host PC I do not have any internet at all.
    I tried to NAT the virtual ethernet adapter either, but no difference.
    My OS is WinXp Pro.
    Any ideas ?

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is JanusVM, and what is so special about it.

    Of course, this doesn't help us determine why VMWARE isn't talking on the Internet, that should be independent of the guest O/S.

    Like I was expected, the problem is that my ISP map my MAC address to my IP.
    I talked to them and I know for sure it is impossible to give an internet to the virtual machine if I use the bridge networking.
    Because this way two different MAC addresses try to be part of my ISP network.One is my MAC address (which my ISP knows) the other one is the MAC address of the virtual machine (JanusVM), which my ISP does not know, so it blocks it and refuse to make it part of the network.It gives him an IP address, but it is private IP address which can not talk to any computer and especially not to the internet.
    They want me to pay extra money for that new MAC address ( new IP ).It does not matter that this MAC address is physical address of a virtual machine, not a real computer.

    If I use ICS (ipnat.sys) build in XP (and disable VMware NAT connection option), I can connect the virtual machine to the internet.The problem is that the main purpose of JanusVM is anonymity.
    It use tor, samba, vpn and other applications.So u connect JanusVM to the internet , than u make a VPN from your PC to the JanusVM and than u exit to the internet.So JanusVM is like a mediator between u and internet.You brouse internet through JanusVM.
    So I can not manage to get it working when I use NAT.

    BTW It worked with bridge networking.I said to my ISP that I want to try for free the second IP lease for an hour (they gave me an hour) and than to deside wheater I'll buy a second IP or not.

    Why can't you connect through a router and run TOR from the VM? Why do you need a second public IP address?

    So, spend the $20-30 for a router and solve the problem the easy way!
